Despite significant legislative achievements Lloyd George’s administration had by 1922 become increasingly unstable. Dissatisfaction with his foreign and domestic policies weakened Lloyd George's position and his credibility was further damaged by controversy surrounding the sale of honours.
In October Lloyd George received further criticism over his approach to the Turkish crisis and following a meeting of Unionist MPs, called by Austen Chamberlain at the Carlton Club, the coalition was voted down by 185 votes to 88. Lloyd George resigned as Prime Minister and was replaced by Andrew Bonar Law.
This letter from William Ormsby-Gore to Andrew Bonar Law, dated two days before the meeting at the Carlton Club, discusses the issue of Lloyd George remaining as Prime Minister and the future of the coalition government.
